There's just definitely a good bit of room between the vamp and the top of my foot. I'm hoping an insole will do the trick.
Of course, that might also tighten the sides a bit due to elevation of your foot. Also consider a tongue insert/pad. Good luck!

It's a brand new policy.

Was told on the phone the restock would apply when I posed the hypothetical of exchanging due to a defect that I might not be comfortable with in hopes I could find a defect that I am comfortable with - also talked about trying to have them look at the actual shoes to be shipped to describe the defect before shipping to reduce this potentiality. Of course, when there is a real and specific shoe involved in the conversation and if the defect is structural, then anyone's outcome could be on a case basis. My yes response was just stating the policy as I understand it to now be.

Do you think this instep creasing is indicative of a size issue? These are Patriots in 10EEE that I purchased in July. Originally I went home with the 10E but returned them because they were too tight. The 10EEE's took some time to break in but now they feel nice and even a bit loose. Considering ordering some cordovan Patriots but I wanted to check in first on this group's thoughts.

That is exactly what I suspected when this fee started being talked about on here.

I believe I've decided on my shell cordovan MTO......thoughts?  Opinions?

 

Cappuccino cordovan MacNeil

Double butyl sole

Split reverse welt

Light brown transparent for sole edge dressing (think about what the Neumok welt/sole looks like).

 

So, basically, take a cappuccino MacNeil and put it on the sole/welt of a Neumok.  I'm aiming for a more casual shoe, hence the lighter sole/welt.

I'm a newb to AE, and this thread just runs to fast to keep up. Is the 2 for $250 sale still on? I emailed shoebank a few days ago, but have yet to receive a response.

Give them a call for faster service- if the sale is still going on, you dont want to waste more time waiting.

Has anyone discussed with AE their ability/willingness to use natural shell cordovan? Not walnut, but true natural, like Rancourt has been known to use? I'm thinking how awesome a pair of natty shell MacNeils with a natural welt, double oak sole would look.

Just to check, is Allison's email the obvious first name at allenedmonds.com? And is it spelled with one L or two?

I have been told from a few different people at AE that they have no interest in carrying difficult to get cordovan. Moving forward they will only be carrying: Dark brown, burgundy and black

AE told me this is as well. They have no plans to get any other color shell besides the three mentioned in the future.

This is exactly what I came up with, except for an even lighter sole edge (somewhere in-between natural and chili). I also opted for the metal eyelets and blue lining.

Also, I opted for the JR sole rather than double butyl.

Disappointing, especially as natural shell isn't really "difficult to get" if you aren't trying to get a specific shade (like, not trying to get ravello or something hand-dyed) but rather just get a plain piece.

I don't think it's a matter of it being difficult to get. If you aren't dying it, you have no way to cover the imperfections. That is the reason #8, black and brown are so relatively "plentiful".
post #29925 of 46870
Yeah, I understand that. But it's not as rare as the colors that have to be darkened from the natural, like ravello or whiskey, and where people flip out if its not the exact shade they want. Okay, well I'm sending her the request anyway, and I'll put in the caveat that I don't mind if there are minor imperfections in the natural shell.
